Because of a severe fungal infection post operation my treatment for gallbladder cancer was delayed for a year. At that time they found a tumor in my colon that was also found to be in the gallbladder. It was removed. I have had no treatment since it was delayed so long and have CT scans and colonoscopies and endoscopies yearly. My oncologist does lab work. So far they can find no cancer at all.

My father is a gall bladder cancer patient. He can't digest anything. So he is not allowed to eat anything. He is living only on IV nutritional supplements. That’s why he is getting weaker every day. Surgery is not allowed for him, and chemotherapy is also not effective.
